American Greed Is The Most Important TV Series of this Century!
13 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Anybody remember the Wall Street meltdown of 2008/2009? Remember how they fixed this mess? Tax Payers bailed out not only Wall Street, Banks, Insurance Companies (AIG) and more entities than I care to list.

I have seen every season of American Greed with exception to seasons 2 and 3.

If I can say one positive about the "Great Recession" of 2008/2009 it exposed multiple Ponzi Schemes that showed corrupt businesses ripping off not only Americans but investors all over the world in the billions of dollars.

Charles Ponzi was famous for starting this scheme many many years ago but really took off again in recent years with the great economies of the late 1990's and also early in the 21st century. Bernie Madoff is the most infamous of this type of scheme as he took it to another level which lasted for over two decades and bilked honest American and International people out of billions.

American Greed covers many of the most incredible cases where one or a group of individuals defrauded countless Americans out of their life savings and destroyed many families financially as a result.

Some of the more intriguing cases for me where the criminals were convicted:

Gerald Payne - Greater Ministries International

Scott Rothstein - Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm

Tom Petters - Fingerhut and Polaroid

Nevin Shapiro - Major League Fraud - Gambling addict but started legitimate business originally. Exposed Miami Hurricanes Football

Steven Warshak - Enzytes. Products he sold was a total fraud but his commercials most funny in history with smiling Bob.

So many more great episodes during 8 seasons of fraud and ponzi schemes.

Stacy Keach does a great job narrating and this is an awesome true crime series that has just recently started their 9th season. I give this series a 10/10. I hope this series lasts forever and keep exposing the criminals throughout the USA and Internationally about multiple crooks with only one goal in mind: steal your money!
